Congratulations to the University of Newcastle Rugby Club on winning the inaugural Laffan Cup.
Teams from universities in New South Wales took part in the 15 a side competition held at the University of Western Sydney on Saturday 20 March 2010.
The Laffan Cup is named in memory of Matt Laffan - renowned disability activist, lawyer and passionate rugby union fan - who died from a rare genetic condition in 2009.
The University of Newcastle Rugby Club won the final with a last minute field goal and was presented with the Cup by Matt's parents Dick and Jenny Laffan. Engineering student Tom Torrance was named player of the series.
The win is a great boost for the members of the University of Newcastle Rugby Club, who are preparing for the 2010 season that kicks off on Saturday 10 April.
